Discredited methods
23 April 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The third season of SVU started with a young girl who is the eldest of three daughters of Amy Irving and Brian Kerwin coming the squad and reporting a rape to Mariska Hargitay. Sad to say though the perpetrator she says is her father.

As it is there is tension in the family anyway. Kerwin is the son-in-law of a powerful tycoon with whom he just wrested away control of his company. This accusation from out of left field as he sees it has messed his world up pretty good.

Though he's released as the squad tries to gather sufficient evidence for a case, Kerwin is then found shot to death in his office and they've got a family full of potential suspects.

Presiding over all of this is Shirley Knight a psychotherapist with a few issues of her own and using outmoded and discredited methods of treatment. It turns out she's the bottom of all the problems.

Knight is truly some piece of work and what happens with her should serve almost like a public service announcement for people if they're seeking mental health treatment research carefully whom you seek it from.
